About me

Gender FEMALE
Location Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
Introduction First things first: aloha! I'm not from Melbourne (though I've lived here for almost 10 years) and I didn't live through the 1960s. But that's pretty much what this blog's all about: magnificent Melbourne back in its groovy heyday. The music, the fashion, the places, the faces - and anything else that springs to mind (suggestions and personal memories very welcome!). And the blog's name? Well, as a newly arrived Sandgroper back in 2004, I was amazed to learn that Melbourne was founded by a fellow called Batman, and came close to being named Batmania in his honour! Holy near misses, Batman - how cool would it be to live in a town called Batmania? So bearing in mind this unique history, as well as the fact that '60s Melbourne sounds like it was pretty damn gogotastic, I decided to name the blog accordingly...
